11 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
Old Goat Farm, 20021 Orting Kapowsin Hwy. E. Graham, WA 98338
Immerse yourself in a day exploring the joy of color in the garden, art, photography, and fresh flowers. Our setting is the destination nursery Old Goat Farm, known for rare plants and luscious display gardens. Lunch is provided, and all participants receive a copy of Lorene Edwards Forkner’s new book “Color In and Out of the Garden.”
- Plantsman Greg Graves leads a guided tour of the nursery’s exuberant display gardens, featuring perennial borders and woodland gardens stocked with rare plants – and quite a few peacocks. (Old Goat Farm is also an animal sanctuary. Read more here.)
- Lorene Edwards Forkner, Seattle Times garden columnist and author, shares her simple, yet eye-opening, watercolor grid exercise that forms the basis of her latest book “Color In and Out of the Garden.” No artistic experience is necessary! All materials provided.
- Grace Hensley shares her secrets for making magical garden photos using your phone.
- Debra Prinzing, founder of the Slow Flowers movement (and GardenComm past president), gives a demonstration in floral artistry.
- Browse the nursery’s plant offerings and catch up with old and new friends!
